With My Ear to the Wall

With My Ear to the Wall is a tactile audio installation of tumblers, placed to the wall. Inciting empathy, curiosity and a sense of closeness, With My Ear to the Wall is an opportunity to eavesdrop on the tender insights of the lives of strangers. Created with local people.

With My Ear to the Wall is an intimate and tactile audio installation. Inciting empathy, a sense of closeness and an almost voyeuristic curiosity, With My Ear to the Wall is an opportunity to eavesdrop on the tender insights of the lives of strangers.

Each tumbler is designed to be placed against the wall and shares the voice of a person with experience of health-based isolation / extended periods of time spent at home.

Jenny Gaskell is a Manchester-based artist who has a history of anxiety and depression. One of her best friends has a long-term health condition which means she’s not always able to leave the house for stretches of time.

Her friend said to her once:

‘I wonder if people forget I exist, because they just don’t see me around’.

With My Ear to the Wall creates ways to help us remain connected to people who are not always in the room and to listen to perspectives which are at risk of not being heard.
